The Wolf of Wall Street
Martin Scorsese directs the story of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort. From the American dream to corporate greed, Belfort goes from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a life of corruption in the late 80s. Excess success and affluence in his early twenties as founder of the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont warranted Belfort the title "The Wolf of Wall Street." -- (C) Paramount

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"DiCaprio has hinted before that comedy might be his natural calling -- think of Catch Me If You Can -- but his energy here is not just fun, it's discovery."
‑ David Thomson, The New Republic
"Man, does this movie have a savage bite."
‑ Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
"Terence Winter's adaptation of convicted fraudster Jordan Belfort's memoir is nonstop splat-thwack-four-letter-120-miles-an-hour-f----s----f--- you. To money, to America, to women."
‑ Ray Pride, Newcity
"Scorsese wheels out all his slick tricks to turn this relatively one-note story into a three hour thrill-ride that only ever feels tired when it's vital to the story."
‑ Anthony Morris, The Vine
"This is a fantastic exploration of greed, money, and a truly flawed character that spent much of the nineties on a jaw-dropping but pernicious thrill-ride."
‑ Raam Tarat, Future Movies UK
"Scorsese unleashes a furious, yet exquisitely controlled, kinetic energy, complete with a plunging and soaring camera, mercurial and conspicuous special effects, counterfactual scenes, subjective fantasies, and swirling choreography on a grand scale."
‑ Richard Brody, New Yorker
"I couldn't buy it, and couldn't wait for the hollow spectacle to end."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"A classic tale of the unquenchable thirst of greed..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"This much-anticipated chronicle of depravity at once amuses and nauseates."
‑ Tom Glasson, Concrete Playground
"Along with its three-hour runtime, this baggy plotting may make Wolf a somewhat harder sell to audiences but it's a deeper movie than The Departed -- among the best that Scorsese has made."
‑ Nick Pinkerton, Sight and Sound
"The Wolf of Wall Street is a magnificent black comedy: fast, funny, and remarkably filthy."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"It's hard not to feel there is a better revisit of Scorsese's crime gem already in theaters, David O. Russell's American Hustle."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"Martin Scorsese's finest in more than a decade."
‑ Shane Danielsen,
"Full of sex, drugs and amoral characters, but it is fascinating to watch."
‑ Jackie K. Cooper,
"Plays less as an insightful critique and more as an exercise in indulgence."
‑ David Keyes,
